This delay is similar to last year, when the 2017 Panameras first came out. My Panamera 4S sat at the port for more than two months awaiting certification. For it's part, Porsche did add a two year Scheduled Maintenance Plan to my vehicle at no charge.

That's the FIRST arrival I've heard of at a dealership. Since Porsche first predicted that EPA certification wouldn't happen until March -- this can only mean that this might not take as long as we thought!

Good news. Thank you.

Just got off the phone with Joseph at Liegh Porsche in NC and he has a ST in his showroom! Mine has been sitting in RI for 4 weeks. Maybe Xmas will come early.

Mine was built but the dealer told me it will come in Feb/March with my GT3. If the EPA hold is release I can enjoy it during the winter months here. I'll give them a call tomorrow.

I came across this listing yesterday at Champion Porsche so they must be able to sell them in US now which is good news

As a side note I originally ordered mine in rhodium silver, then changed to chalk when it became available and then ultimately to agate gray - the chalk looks awesome on this one and I'm regretting that change

I checked today with my dealer. Obviously, EPA certification has now been achieved, but still no world from PCNA on CARB certification. I'm crossing my fingers, though, that maybe I'll see my car before the previous April ETA. I wish I could figure out a way to just sneak it out of impound on the dock in San Diego!

My car will probably get here in 7 days. Now I have to decide which daily car to let go.

As of December 19, PCNA was reporting"likely April" for CARB certification. They also thought March for EPA, so I'm hopeful CARB will be accelerated as well.
